BeefOnWeck.jpg

It is a roast beef sandwich on a salty kummelweck roll, w/ a bit or rock salt outside on the top of the roll. Made only in the Buffalo-Rochester area, the "Roast Beef on Weck" is basically a Kaiser roll topped with lots of pretzel salt and caraway seeds. I had my first one in 1982. Kummelweck is simply shortened to “weck.” The sandwich is usually served with sinus-clearing horseradish , a couple of huge kosher dill pickle slices on the side, and extra beef juice served straight from the roast. Wash it all down with a cold, locally brewed ale. Then go see the boys tomorrow night.

You got me DH - it just happens to be Lunch time here - I will have to settle for a cheeseburger on a regular bun with pickle and Chips!!!

Do they make the weck's with the same salt they use on the roads?

i think it is the salt resultant from sweating out of Terrell Owens as he contemplates how cold the games are going to be in December :)



(the sandwich does sound quite yummy though)

That looks awesome. Can you imagine the particles from that bad boy sandwich getting caught in Weir's Civil war 'stache?

My mouth is already watering! That sounds good. How about a recipe for the bread. I bake alot (used to in a different way) and would love to make the bread.

It would take a trained traveler to ferret out that fact. I grew up, and out, on BoW's from the "Ale House" near SUNY Brockport. Another Buffalo area tradition is "Black & Tan" beers from the tap. Half dark beer and half ale. Good bartenders could keep the colors separate while pouring from the tap. Let us not forget the "Buffalo chicken wing."

Here's one found around Broome County NY, called Lamb Spiedies, which is essentially kabob on a roll.

I was Field Service Engineer w/ Ampex - in the early '80s

Alexander M Poniatoff exellence

the VPR-3s were the state-of-the-art one-inch VTRs
I installed and serviced tons of these workhorses in mid-town NYCvpr3s.jpg

I installed and serviced lots of VPR-80s upstate — Buffalo-Rochester area
many trips installing these cheaper one-inch VTRs at Kodak and Xerox in Rochester
